not worth it to be honest, it would cost you in the thousands, lowering the compression, the turbo itself, engine management, custom manifolds, cats, exhausts, its not just as simple as banging a turbo in the mixer, it used to be said that there are three things, power, reliability, cost(cheapness) and you can only have two, for example if you want to do it on the cheap, and make it fast, your going to have reliability problems, if you want it powerful and reliable it aint going to be cheap, and so on.

A better way and probably cost as much as doing the above would be to look out for a crashed 225, ive seen the engines go for a little over 1k, then you'll have instantly double'd the BHP.......................................and your chances of ending up in a bush, or without a license if your not planning on letting your insurance know.

If your wanting to do it mearly for a dump valve sound, buy your self a max power electric dv.

In all honesty your better off buying a derv, 120bhp standard, easily remapped up to 165, massive torque figures if you get an uprated clutch, and your still returning 50mpg, and the insurance is cheap.
